Today we had a great time with Granny and Pop. Granny called really early this morning with an invite to breakfast. YUM YUM! We all got up and dressed and went to Granny's. We had homemade biscuits, gravy, sausage, bacon, and eggs. Then we all headed off to pick blueberries. Believe or not all three of the girls have been very excited about doing this. That wore off pretty quick. Morgan decided she was bored not long after we filled our first 1 gallon bucket. Madison's legs hurt, and Sarah ate many more than she picked. Thanks to Granny, Pop and Scott we still managed to pick 5 gallons in about an hour. They are soooooo yummy!
The girls have had a lot of fun this past week. They played with the neighbors on the trampoline with the water hose. They played dodge ball with their friends. Madison and Morgan played many rounds of Mancala. Sarah played on Mom. That must be why my back is so sore. We hope to have even more fun this week!
Madison fell Friday and hurt herself. At first we didn't think it was all that bad. Her first swim meet was going to be Saturday morning and she really wanted to participate. After she woke up several times Friday night we decided she needed to go to the Doctor Saturday. I took Morgan to the meet, and Scott to Madison to the Doctor. Two x-rays later they discovered she had a broken collar bone. No more swim team for Madison. She has to take it easy for 5 weeks. YUCK!
We just got back from a seven day vacation at Orange Beach with two of our couple friends. Between the three of us we have 10 children. We all stayed in the same condominium and we're all still friends. Our trip started out a little rough though. We left home Saturday the 31st and had only been on the road about 2 hours when our oldest daughter started throwing up. At first we thought maybe she was car sick, but it continued all day long. When we stopped for lunch we were about 45 minutes from our vacation destination and our youngest daughter threw up in Chic-fil-a. It's not just car sickness anymore. It's a virus. The couple we were traveling with was (I'm sure) looking forward to spending a week with us. My oldest daughter spent most of the first three days of vacation in her bedroom. My youngest is still running a temperature. The jelly fish were horrible the first two or three days, but after that things started to look up. We ended up having a great time. The jelly fish left with the virus and the waves got really big and fun. Our wonderful husbands took all the children to the aviation museum one day and the moms went shopping alone. It was great!
